Into the unknown

Confused, perplexed, puzzled and lost
dazed,amazed, on a ship with a broken mast
No job, no money, no love, no aim
Not even a simple dream to claim

I'm not unhappy, I'm not sad.
I'm not happy, I'm still mad!
Nothing going on nothing to tell,
boring life, boring as hell.

Am I where I wanted to be on this day?
Where do I wanna be 10 years from today?
What do I want from life, where do I wanna go?
I'm sitting on a neat boat, with nothing to row!

I dunno who I am, nor who I was
what is the meaning of this pause?
Is it just a phase? Will it pass?
Or will I laze all life like a lump of mass?

I look in the mirror, I see some guy
I look into it deep and ask who am I?
I don't know myself, how will you?
A stranger to myself, the strangest truth.

Its not about this or that or anything exact
Its just about the loose ends in fact
Time to forget all the drama, all the hype
High time I started, coming up in life!

I'll come up myself, I don't need nothing!
Into the unknown, into the wild, a real homecoming.
One fine day, my calling will come,
That day, the whole World will know Who I Am!

@Rubs
Actually there were supposed to be a paragraph also, which would have explained that amazed and yet bored part.

@Madhu
You and Perplexed, and maybe some more are worried about the world part :D

Its only metaphorical. Means to say, people I know and people who know me, will know my purpose on earth! :P
Didn't want to make it sound so philosophical, so wrote it like that!

Doesn't mean the WHOLE world exactly!


And about the +ve thing.

Yes, its positive. Thats why it ends +vely. (Doing some deep analysis of the poem eh? :D )

All my write ups are +ve

-ve people take it -vely
+ve people take it +vely

Rebecca said...

your friends said it all, it is really very good. I would like very much to read more of your poems. So far the few I have read are beautiful, sad, thought provoking and from the heart.

Iceman said...

Sad? Oops! :D Looks I'm sending wrong signals ;)

But Thnx for likin' em! :)

Rebecca said...

you are not sending the wrong signals in your poems, I get a little sad when you write of a future that is better for you & everyone else. I think you know why that would make me a bit sad don't you?
